Baked Oatmeal: The Best Part of Waking Up (Besides Coffee)
Awesome Tom, our B&B fixer-of-all-things, is kind of a Renaissance man. He repairs railings, fixes pipes, sands down doors, gardens, and can create anything out of wood that you might ask for. He also bakes, cooks, and sews, much to the delight of his wife as you can imagine.
Anyway, baked oatmeal never seemed like something I’d want to wake up to. It just sounded so…grandpappy..and false teeth-ish, and like what you’d eat in a nursing home.
Until the day Tom walked in with with samples and THIS recipe. I was waaay wrong. Baked oatmeal is kind of like a warm oatmeal-cookie hug with fruit or whatever you want to put in it – even chocolate chips. Seriously! Of course, I had to bake a batch the very next day. It was so good I started making it in the morning and serving it to guests
Because it only has six main ingredients, it goes together pretty easily. I know! Six ingredients, and you likely have them all on your shelf right now! Just stir together, pour into a 9×9 square pan, and bake for about 40-45 minutes. Voila!
Get ready for a warm oatmeal-cookie hug. This WILL be one of the best parts of waking up!
